I think you should read your post again.
Why not investigate see why a docu on a bunch of young mid/low-level tulkus reborn in the west creates such strong reactions and emotions in you? Nyingmas originally didn't have tulkus nor hierarchical establishment and organization on this scale anyway.
such strong reactions and emotions in you? Really, I just stated my view without that much emotion at all, so sorry it triggered such a reaction in you.
I agree with your points kirtu. I don't write them off either. But to me it's a lot of energy to make mega broadcast of what????
You know, one of the strangest things in this movie for me was the scene was where Gesar's was receiving offerings at Shechen and walking out the front door and down the court yard asking this big question about his place as a tulku, and Changling Rinpoche was along side him when he was receiving the offering and he saw him to the entrance and stood there as he walked off. If he didn't take the opportunity to discuss his dilemma with Changling Rinpoche I think that was a HUGE opportunity lost. I don't know whether he did or not, but Changling Rinpoche, I feel would have been able to help him address a lot of his questions and give him some perspective, but this wasn't mentioned in the movie. As usual, I'm probably wrong everything.
I was waiting for Namdrol to contribute
